We ONLY book shows via email. Please send all inquiries to Joel Collins by emailing [email protected] Please include your location, links to your music & history in the area.
To be considered, make sure to also include your band name and a link to your social media and music (Facebook, Spotify, Instagram, Bandcamp, etc.). The easier it is to access your music, the more likely we can work together.
We generally book 2-3 months in advance, with little short notice availability. Before emailing, please make sure whatever date you are interested in is available by checking the website. However, do note that just because a date is not listed on the website does not mean it is available.
If you’re touring and new to the area, it is very helpful if you have already contacted some local bands about playing with you before reaching out.
We do not have any backline at Local 506. You should plan to bring your instruments, amps, etc. We do provide a professional sound engineer and sound system, so you’ll never need to bring a P.A. or anything of that sort.
We do ask that if you have a show booked at Local 506, you do not play a show in the the Triangle area (Chapel Hill/Carrboro/Durham/Raleigh) three weeks before or after our date. This helps to ensure that shows are a success for everyone involved.
Getting booked is less than half of a successful show. We aren’t a restaurant, sports bar, etc., so we don’t have any sort of built in crowd. If you are booked, it is assumed you will work to bring people to the show. We make and distribute fliers, advertise on social media and in print, and generally push our shows and calendar out to the area, but you know who your fans are much better than we do.
